    • Tod Williams and Billie Tsien began working together in 1977 and founded their architectural practice in 1986. Over the past three decades, Williams and Tsien have received more than two-dozen American Institute of Architects (AIA) Awards, primarily for their work on schools, museums, and nonprofits. Their studio focuses on “organizations and people that value issues of aspiration and meaning, timelessness and beauty.” This lecture is hosted in partnership with AIA and kicks off the Architecture Lecture Series’ tenth anniversary.
